Protect & Seal Your Garage Door Frame With Garage Door Capping
To protect the house against moisture and weather damage, homeowners will install aluminum capping – also called trim or cladding – around their windows and doors.
Since the garage door is often the largest point of entry for the house, homeowners should consider installing aluminum capping for the garage door. Garage door aluminum capping is a simple financial investment that saves money on heating and maintenance while improving the look of your garage doors. Capping will save you a lot of money on home repairs – as it protects the wooden garage door frame from rotting and cracking.
What is Garage Door Aluminum Capping?
Aluminum capping is cut-to-order cladding (from aluminum rolls) installed to cover and protect the wood garage door frame. The aluminum is applied as wrapping to cover every square inch of the frame. Every metal piece meets flush with the garage to create the perfect seal – which shuts off draughts and controls thermoregulation.
Capping is popular for different parts of the home (ie. windows) – but always with the same purpose – to protect wood frames against weather damage and moisture.
Benefits of Capping for the Garage Door Frame
Aluminum capping for the garage door has several benefits. It is one of the most simple yet effective financial investments you can make for your home exterior.
Protection for the Wood Frame
Whether your garage door frame is brand new or several years old, aluminum capping is always a good investment.
Capping will seal off your garage door, protecting it for decades. This applies even if your wood frame already has some damage. Wood rot caused by weather damage will no longer be a concern.
Match Your Garage Doors Perfectly and Boost the Curb Appeal of Your Home
Modern homes need modern materials for protecting the exterior. This is also true for modern residential garage doors. A distressed wood garage door frame will stand out in contrast to an exterior that uses high-end materials. Aluminum capping improves the aesthetics of your home – boosting the “curb appeal” which is typically a good investment.
Our capping service is always bespoke, custom-made with a wide range of aluminum types and colours to choose from. Your garage door frame will match your garage doors and be as modern as your home’s exterior.
No More Maintenance Costs and No More Painting!
Aluminum capping doesn’t rust – even after years of snow and rain like we only get in Canada! The factory paint for aluminum – available in almost any colour to match your garage door – resists fading from sun and road salt and will stay looking vibrant for years. No more painting and sealing a damaged wood frame every summer!
More Efficient Energy Usage for the Home
For some properties the garage door can take up 30% of the house’s front exterior. Because of this, the garage door and frame can be a huge cause of heat loss for the home. Heat is lost in the winter (and air conditioning escapes in summer) – especially when the garage door frame is warped and cracked – causing a draught.
Aluminum capping seals up the exterior of the home at every point of contact with the garage door frame. You can expect to see lower energy usage on your monthly bill – a result of better thermoregulation.
Much Cheaper Than Building a New Frame
Garage door capping is one of the most simple and beneficial investments you can make for your home. Capping looks great and lowers your maintenance and energy bills. And it also happens to be less expensive than paying for a new garage door frame! For homeowners, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
For Garage Door Aluminum Capping Always Hire a Professional
All our capping services are delivered by highly skilled professionals. Each project is a custom job measured and cut by tradesmen operating a hand press brake to bend aluminum sheets.
It is important that capping is measured and installed by a professional. Professionally delivered capping will help your home’s exterior to look amazing. However when DIY homeowners attempt to perform this job – the results are usually amateurish and really draw the eye towards the cladding defects! Measuring, cutting, and installing aluminum is a trade requiring years of experience.
